We're celebrating our 25th anniversary and you're invited to the party!

The Women's Center operates on a very limited budget not funded through tuition dollars or student fees but rather from the state. You may not know that the Women's Center operates on an annual programming budget of only $1,238.

We rely on campus partners and the support of donors like you to make events like Critical Social Justice and Take Back the Night possible. We provide critical resources to the UMBC community and do much with little – here's just snap shot of some of the work we did during the 2015-16 academic year:

Women's Center by the Numbers
This past year alone…

  • 252 students, faculty, and staff received individualized 1-1 support from professional staff
  • 250 students, faculty, and staff attended Take Back the Night 2016
  • 370 guests attend 9 events during Critical Social Justice: Baltimore 365
  • 521 community members took advantage of our free menstrual products and condoms
  • 507 visits by moms to our lactation room
  • 1,123 students attended identity-based discussion programs Between Women, Spectrum, and the Women of Color Coalition
  • 3,589 students spent time in the Women's Center studying, connecting with friends, and learning in our space

Each year the Women's Center serves and supports approximately 10,000 UMBC students, staff, faculty, alumni, and visitors with a small budget. Your gift today helps us make sure this essential resource is there for future generations.

Join our campaign with a gift of $25 (or more, or less!)

We are asking our Women's Center friends to make a gift of $25 in honor of our our milestone-- but a donation of any size helps us achieve our goal. Become one of the Women's Center friends who are celebrating our anniversary with your gift. Just 100 friends making a gift of $25 each will nearly double our budget-- meaning we can do even more of the important work we've accomplished in the last quarter century.

To learn more about why our friends are giving, check out our Friends of the Women's Center photo gallery.

All funds raised are administered by the UMBC Foundation for the benefit of UMBC.
